Re: Carrie Stevens Weekend II 6/23-24

LED's don't emit UV, which is what will degrade colored (painted, dyed, etc) items. Museums (particularly art museums) have already started shifting over because of this. The only issue is which coloration of LED gives the best visual for the display in question.

Re: Carrie Stevens, the hard way (long winded)

Fantastic project! Your approach and results are spot on. Congrats on that. It is not easy, as you know, to achieve Carrie's 'look'. Kudos!

As to color, some of my more productive variants use a dubbed hare's ear body and either orange or green dubbed butt or 'egg' ...

Re: Life Before Graphite

I echo Eric and Mike's sentiments on DT lines. As a streamer-centric fly fisher, it's all I use. Adding WF lines for me would just complicate things. In addition to outperforming on long roll casts, depending on the taper/belly a WF line can be nearly impossible to flip/roll in some short, tight sit...
